Psychic practices, including healing, rely on channeling energy, your energy and the energy of the people and places around you. Crystals are natural energy conductors, and therefore make excellent tools for assisting in this type of work.
When we say the word crystal, most of us think of diamonds and rubies, or amethyst and quartz, but all rocks are crystals. They are all composed of different crystalline structures, and it is these structures that dictate their color and gives certain crystals greater affinity to varying types of energy.
Crystals can draw and conduct energy, pulling the type of energy that we want to us for us to access and use, or pulling energy that we don’t want out of us. They can also absorb and block energy, protecting ourselves from negative energy.
When doing energy work, healing, or psychic readings, what are the best crystals to use?

There are many ways to use crystals as part of healing or psychic rituals. Many people like to hold a certain type of crystal in their hand when they are conducting this kind of energy work, strengthening their connection with the desired energy. Others prefer to wear their crystals, to either ward off or attract energy. They can also be used to transform the energy of a space, drawing out unwanted energy and attracting desirable energy. Warding crystals should be placed in areas that are the threshold of a space, while attracting crystals should be situated in the centre of a space, at its heart.
